Store bought room sprays and deodorizers may smell good, but they can be very bad for your upper respiratory system as well as your overall health. Common ingredients in these products include formaldehyde, phthalates, and dangerous aerosol propellants such as butane and propane — not to mention the thousands of other endocrine-disprupting chemicals that are not required to be disclosed on the product’s label. Exposure to these ingredients has been linked to cancer, pulmonary damage, asthma, and skin issues, among other concerns.
There’s a reason why there are so many options on the face mist market. Whether you’re looking to hydrate your skin or set your makeup, there’s something extremely refreshing about spritzing your face.
Judging by the price tag of mineral water in an aerosol can, it’s clear that brands know this too.
That being said, finding a mist that hydrates, nourishes and soothes skin (while giving your makeup extra staying power) is easier said than done. This is especially true for those who are sensitive.
